@pfalcon regarding SPI:
Thank you for explanation.
Creating SPI object only with MOSI, MISO and SCK pins defined and manually setting values of CS/NSS (GPIO) pins is how I currently do it on CC3200. I just thought that on ESP8266 platform CS/NSS pin name parameter will be required when creating SPI object.

I wonder whether I'm the only one sitting in front of a PC, esp and USB cable in hand, looking a the minute counter to go down on the Kickstarter page, ready to flash ... .

Thanks guys!! It's great beyond words! Please let us celebrate a bit tonight, and as Damien mentioned in the campaign comments, tomorrow we'll post official crowdfunding completion update and plan for the next steps.

In the meantime, this thread becomes first topic in the new official ESP8266 subforum!

If anyone is looking to buy an Adafruit Feather Huzzah board, digikey has a bunch of them (85 in stock at the time of this post).

If you guys want a breakout for the ESP, I made one after being fed up with the ridiculously bad eBay ones (you know, the white ones that are too wide for the breadboard and don't provide all the pulldown/ups or a cap):

Feel free to fab your own, pull requests welcome!

When can we expect floating point operations to be added?
